Hello friends. Another homework assignment (who knew homework could be so much fun?!!) from Altenew Academy Watercolor class. Day 3 shows us how to emboss our image first, and then drop in the color. Another technique I had to play around a bit with, but I like the way this card turned out! My photo is a little dark because of lack of sunshine, so just imagine it a little brighter!
I used Botanical Blocks II (PTI) and embossed it with gold embossing powder, and then began coloring it in using water, Hibiscus Burst, just a touch of Autumn Rose, Simply Chartreuse, & Ripe Avocado inks. It's really cool to watch the color travel when you put down water first, and then ink. The sentiment is from Keep it Simple: Birthday (PTI). A few gold dots, some sequins, and gold cord finished off my card.
Thanks so much for stopping by...I love it when you do!! :0)
